Mr Robin Swann has announced that he is to again be the North Antrim Ulster Unionist Assembly candidate in the forthcoming Stormont poll on 2ndMarch, a seat he has held since 2011.
Mr Swann said he would be again standing on his constituency record of ‘Putting People First’, which the Ulster Unionists have consistently champion since the party entered the Northern Ireland Assembly in 1998.
Mr Swann has served as Chairman of the Stormont Public Accounts Committee and has been to the fore in that Committee’s investigations into the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme debacle.
Mr Swann said: “Since the UUP first won representation to the Assembly in 1998 during the first mandate, we have gained a first class reputation for our Putting People First manifesto in which we have sought to help constituents with their day to day challenges, whilst at the same time striving to defend the Union.
“If elected again in March, I will be continuing the constituency work which I have been working on since 2011, where the UUP team in North Antrim have been putting patients first, putting pupils first, and putting pensioners first – this is at the core of our Putting People First manifesto.
“We urge constituents to not just ensure they are on the electoral register, but ensure they exercise their democratic rights and come out to vote on 2ndMarch for the UUP as the party which puts real and responsible governing as a priority,” said Mr Swann.
